First YOSM/geocache of the year. No parking so pulled in as close as we could and followed a little trail straight to the FBM. Road very quiet.

Last one of my guided tour of YOSMs by Mrs B. No parking near this one so it was good to be chauffeured. Otherwise easily found even in the dark.

Parked up nearby on the road. Took a while to find within the undergrowth, but I followed the arrow on the GPS and there it was.

A misty damp day made worse by the fact this was hidden in head high wet bracken. Managed to park a few hundred yards down the hill towards Bettyhill. Logged as a YSM.

Fruitless search in the ferns made even worse by the midges.

Easy roadside bag with parking beside FBM. Took a couple of minutes to find amongst the bracken but the little trail mentioned below helped.

FBM was well-hidden in thick bracken. Found with the help of Bergfuehrer who had visited previously.

No problem finding this one. There's a little trail to it through the heather. Found on our tour of Scotland. Re-logging as originally found as Maxiboo22 but consolidating all finds under the one account.

Finally we have found a fundamental benchmark. Easy to find as it is right by the road even if it is covered in bracken.

Sutherland. Easy enough to find at this time of year with just the grid reference.

Pleasant spot, overlooking the hidden vale of Strath Naver. Very good beef burgers at Melvich, a few miles to the east.
